To-post-not-to-post-smallWhat is okay to post on Facebook these days? There’s everything from ultra sound pictures to death announcements to bikini pictures. Is there a line? Should there be one? Consider for a minute who is on your friend list… old bosses, people you might want to work with or for in the future, your grandmother, your little cousin and what about the guy you went to high school with who is now a cop?

The average number of friends is 234. Did you really mean to share your holiday snaps with 234 people, and potentially more – depending on who commented on your pictures and what their privacy settings are. Check out this recent post on how to keep your Facebook profile private.

Okay, it’s fine if Mark Zuckerberg wants Facebook to bring us all a little closer, but here at BullGuard we just want you to be safe! Think twice before posting your location, home address or phone number. And don’t take work stress or any kind of questionable activities to your status update. People have gotten fired and arrested before via Facebook.

If you do really feel the need to post something questionable or private in nature, Facebook’s privacy settings allow you to create a group of friends that you can post exclusively to. Come on, your mother doesn’t need to see that! Besides, who knows who could be watching…

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen posted by a friend? What’s on your list of what not to post? Tell us!
